DENTON, Md.- Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan continued his spotlight on local businesses and communities with a tour Thursday in Caroline County. The governor made stops at several locations throughout the day, but kicked off his Caroline County tour with the groundbreaking for a much-awaited visitor's center. 

Crouse Park Visitor & Heritage Center is the first for Caroline County, the only county in the state of Maryland Hogan said that didn't have a visitor's center. 

"Today we have some very exciting news. We're finally moving forward on the new visitor's center. Caroline County was the only county in the state that didn't have one, and they been working on it for 19 years, so when I was elected governor, I said we're going to try and push this thing and make it happen and it's finally becoming a reality," Hogan said.

Hogan finished his afternoon in Caroline County touring several local businesses along Main Street in Downtown Denton. 

Business owners like Anthony Crossling hopes the governor brings more growth to the town.

"Maybe he can come through town and see if maybe they can start giving more money to Denton so we can start doing more things and have more businesses down here to make this a community where people want to come, shop and hangout and have a good time," Crossling said.

Hogan said he's keeping his promise to the Eastern Shore.

"We're focused on some of the more rural areas that have been neglected like the Eastern Shore and towns like Denton, with things like opening the community center, getting roads improved, getting more money to the local municipality. We're going to do everything we can to help this area," Hogan said.

Rick Walls lives in the area and said his continuous visits are encouraging.

"The more visits he makes to the area the better," Walls said. "The more he'll understand how things work around here on the Eastern Shore."

Hogan said his goal is to visit every Maryland county every year to keep a close eye on the needs of Eastern Shore communities.
